I'm Dreaming of a "Rice" Christmas


  • 2 slices bacon

  • 1 carrot, shredded

  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped

  • 1/4 red bell pepper, chopped

  • 1/2 cup cooked broccoli florets

  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice

  • 2 teaspoons turmeric

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese


In a medium saucepan, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease from the skillet. Add the carrot, celery and bell pepper and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli, brown rice and turmeric and cook until heated through, 3-4 minutes. Let cool. Serve the rice in a dog dish. Crumble the bacon on top and "let it snow" with the Parmigiano Reggiano!
